So what can you do to introduce some excitement in your kitchen? One of the simplest, most cost effective and practical ways of upgrading the look of your kitchen is by installing a kitchen backsplash. Not only does it help in improving the look of your kitchen, it also helps in protecting your walls from accidental food spills, thus preventing permanent stains which can get quite difficult to remove once they set in.
Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
To come up with new ideas for a kitchen backsplash, they best source is your imagination. Try and decide a theme which goes with the overall colour scheme of your kitchen. If you have yellow coloured cupboards, then a black coloured backsplash crafted out of shiny ceramic tiles will look good. However, if you have a small kitchen, then we would suggest that you go for a white colour scheme as it creates a sense of more space and room.
This selection of kitchen backsplashes offers an unmatched appeal with their inherent makeup that is both durable and uniquely beautiful. This comes in slabs or its cheaper alternative, natural stone tiles. The great thing about this choice is their strength that can last them years and years of fruitful use, gracing your kitchens in the longest possible time. Natural stone kitchen backsplashes offers a delightful array of colors, grains, and patterns that would surely heighten the overall appeal of the area. This choice though, does not come cheap but will definitely boost the value of your home.
A matte finish would normally be a natural stone. Natural Stone is available in both a tumbled and also a honed finish. A tumbled finish will have the exposed pores (holes) in the tile where the honed finish will be more of a smooth finish. Either one is perfect for a backsplash it just comes down to the over all look of the backsplash.
